New VariousKing Bullard Version – Songs Of The BOS Label ... LP LP format
Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spiritual sounds from the Cleveland scene of the 70s – a host of lesser-known acts who recorded for the BOS label at the time, but who could easily match the best strengths of the growing gospel mainstream! The music here relies heavily on secular soul styles of the time – bits of funk or southern modes used heavily in the mix, and some great harmonies in the case of the label's standout male vocal groups – all of whom preach the spirit with the sort of humanity usually reserved for heartbreaking love! Numero have done a great job of pulling together rare singles here – and the set's got a much tighter feel than some of the label's bigger collections – a nicely focused groove that's still plenty appealing to fans of secular soul. Titles include "I Had A Talk" by The Friendly Seven, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Southern Echoes, "Walk Through The Valley" by Sensational Saints, "Glory Glory" by Capitalaires, "Unity" by Mighty Imperials, and "My Life Will Be Sweeter" by Trumplettes.

New VariousSongs For A Central Park Picnic – Presented By Saint Etienne ... CD CD format
Cherry Red (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A warm batch of sunny songcraft, primarily from the 60s – from groovy small combo jazz, to good natured, string-laden vocal tunes, post doo wop group sounds, groovy organ soul, soundtracky instrumentals and beyod – selected by Saint Etienne! It's clear from their own recorded output that Saint Etienne always had terrific ears for breezy, diversely swinging 60s sounds – and they demonstrate that nicely here on a 25 track set compilation – with tunes by Vince Guaraldi, Dave Baby Cortez, The Paris Sisters, Jerry Butler, Connie Francis, Lalo Schifrin and many more! Includes "Be Sure My Love" by Teddy Randazzo, "Be Bom" by Sammy Davis Jr, "Yes I Love You" by The Paris Sisters, "Cha Cha Charming" by Ellie Gaye, "Our Winter Love" by Bill Pursell, "Stranger On The Shore" by The Drifters, "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise" by Vince Guaraldi, "Moon River" by Kerry Butler and more.

New VariousSouth Side Story Vol 23 (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... CD CD format
Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great take on the East Side Story series of soul music compilations from the west coast – that famous less-than-legit collection that featured the kind of killer cuts that really made the Chicano soul scene great! Numero offer their own version of that format, by putting together their own batch of Chicago soul gems – both rare singles, and the kind of unissued tracks you'll find on their other compilations – but which you'd never see in the original series! The work is great – very laidback on the group soul numbers, but with a few harder edges too – and titles include "This Is The Ending Of Our Love" by The Si-Berians, "That's The Kind Of Love" by The Mystics, "I'll Get You Back" by Renaldo Domino, "It Ain't Fair" by Calvin Harris, "Gotta Get Through To You" by Final Solution, "Puppet On A String" by Young Souls, "You Hurt Me" by Donnell Pitmann, "Blowing With The Wind" by Intentions, and "I Don't Wanna Be Late" by The Notations.

New VariousWarner Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD CD format
Warner (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest collections of Burt Bacharach songs we've ever heard – a sweet double-length set that dips deep into the Warner Brothers catalog of the 60s, then moves into later decades for a few choice moments too! Tracks here represent a great range of Warner pop from the time – a bit of jazz, mod instrumentals, soul, girl pop, and more – including some excellent cuts from overseas that fit perfectly in with the American tracks that dominate the set. CD2 moves into some later territory that includes some 70s and 80s takes on Burt's music – showing the ever-growing power of Bacharach, even after his initial burst of songwriting and production. Titles include "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "The Look Of Love" by Anita Kerr Singers, "Cross Town Bus" by Gals & Pals, "And This Is Mine" by Connie Stevens, "You're Following Me" by Caterina Valente, "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Baby It's You" by Jeff Phillips, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Non Mi Innamoro Piu" by Johnny Dorelli & Catherine Spaak, "I Wake Up Crying" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BAnd, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Siw Malmkvist, "In My Reality" by Natalie Cole, "Alfie" by Everything But The Girl, "Are You There With Another Girl" by Mari Wilson, "Tell It To Your Heart" by Randy Crawford, and "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Linda Ronstadt.
